And did we mention the recessed lighting that takes over the house after sunset? It looks stellar directly on concrete.

Warmth comes from the personal touches such as a coffee table ornament with an interesting history or a sculptural art piece that adds modern flair.

The interior is covered in teak floors plaster walls and a wood ceiling to give it a peaceful and organic ambiance.
A lovely sidewalk leads to the entrance of the house which opens up into a stylish living area clad in neutral tones. An open kitchen and dining area are visually connected with the living space on one side and with the gorgeous outdoor garden on the other. Stylish sliding glass door blur the lines between the interior and the backyard while a contemporary floating staircase leads to the top level which houses the master suite and the private terrace.
